Advanced Practice Providers (APPs)

This health care provider works in collaboration with your medical oncologist to help care for you during your treatment and follow-up. An APP can be a physician assistant (PA) or a nurse practitioner (NP). A nurse practitioner is an advanced practice nurse who has completed graduate education and is trained to do physical exams, diagnose, prescribe, and treat medical conditions. Our APPs can help manage your side effects and help carry out your treatment plan safely. You may alternate visits between your APP and oncologist.
